The VMware Identity Manager configuration setting is used to configure directory integration settings between your Workspace ONE UEM instance and your Identity Manager instance.
After binding the two together, Identity Manager can make API calls related to your directory service values. Workspace ONE UEM customers must first deploy VMware Enterprise Systems Connector and set up directory service integration within the Workspace ONE UEM console. Then, you can use this settings page to push your directory configuration to Identity Manager. This functionality does not allow for Workspace ONE UEM to receive directory changes from Identity Manager.
For more information about integrating Workspace ONE UEM with Workspace ONE Access and deploying Workspace ONE with single sign-on to devices, see the Workspace ONE Quick Configuration Guide.
